Serengeti is a national park occupying the area of 15.000 square kilometres in the north of Tanzania. It constitutes a part of Serengeti Ecoregion in the east of the Continent of Africa. The park belongs to Mara Region and neighbours Ngorongoro Biosphere Reserve and Masai Mara Natural Reserve. In 1981, it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List with the aim to preserve the biological diversity of the region.
This park is one of the largest centres for the ecological tourism in the world. The guests of the park can watch the migration of the animals, go hiking in savannas and in the woods situated in the west of the country. You will see such animals as hyena, leopard, elephant, buffalo, baboon, giraffe or rhinoceros.
The extreme tourists can go on a jeep safari or hiking, ride a hot-air balloon or go to the Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano.
On the territory of the park, there are campings. For the lovers of the excursion tourism, there are excursion tours to the neighbouring cities. In the result of archaeological excavations near Olduvai Gorge, the scientists found the monuments of ancient civilizations. However, the works are still going on there, so the place is closed for the visitors.
The tourists should go shopping to the administrative centre of the region Musoma which is 85 kilometres away from the park. In the city, you will find a market and some supermarkets.
The local restaurants will offer fish from the Victoria Lake and traditional dishes. Do not miss a chance to visit Rehema or Alshaz’s.
If you do not want to spend the night in your hotel room, you can go to a bar in a hotel.
